The Master of Arts in Gerontology prepares students for professional responsibility and leadership in the aging network. Students complete required courses that provide a multidisciplinary foundation in gerontology, and select program electives that will prepare them for working with or on behalf of older adults in direct service, management and administration, further scholarship, or similar professional endeavors.
The Masters Program in Gerontology is offered through a combination of courses online, and evenings or weekends on our University of Northern Colorado Greeley campus.
